We are not the cheapest, however, our course instruction and qualification is second to none. We fundamentally believe the minimum should never be your standard and we prepare you for the what ifs. Remember, carrying a concealed firearm is a great responsibility and one that requires ongoing training and practice. We want to provide you with the most enhanced training while minimizing your personal liability. If you only want to settle, we are not the company for you.
